Lee Jun-ki in talks to take Bu Bu Jing Xin remake drama

According to latest reports, Lee Jun-ki (Scholar Who Walks the Night) is considering taking on the remake of the popular Chinese drama Bu Bu Jing Xin, retitled Moon Lovers, with his management confirming that he has received the offer. All the usual caveats apply, about how the discussions are positive but not yet finalized, etc.

In the original series, the present-day heroine traveled back in time to land in the Qing dynasty, leading to romantic entanglements with several Qing princes. The K-drama remake will take place during the early Goryeo era (mid to late 10th century), but while the historical background will be entirely different, I think we can expect many of the same narratives and themes to play out in the new version. With a K-drama twist, of course, which probably means we’ll have more angsty love triangles, a coup attempt or twenty, and star-crossed everything. (I dunno about you, but I think Fate could stand to go on holiday. Who needs destiny to screw you over when we’re so very capable of doing that ourselves?)

If he signs on, Lee Jun-ki would play Goryeo’s fourth king, Gwangjong, born Wang So, who was fourth son to King Taejo. Historically remembered as a harsh ruler, the drama character is described as so cold-blooded that he’s called an untamed wolf. Coincidentally, that’s the same character recently played by Jang Hyuk in MBC’s fantasy historical drama Shine or Go Crazy — reimagined history is all the rage these days, as we know.

In any case, it seems perfectly obvious to have Lee Jun-ki doing a time-traveling fantasy costume drama adaptation — not necessarily obvious in a bad sense, though I wouldn’t mind Lee Jun-ki stepping outside his (beautifully garbed) sageuk wheelhouse for something completely different. But he’s so great in historical projects so I get the interest; even when the dramas themselves aren’t great, he’s always reliably solid in them (Joseon Gunman, Scholar Who Walks the Night).

Kang Haneul (Misaeng) was previously reported as a potential casting, and that is still the case, with no final word just yet. Neither do we have any hint of who they may cast for the time-slipping heroine. Who’s got a wish list already up and running? I’m sad that Moon Chae-won’s already booked, as is Han Chae-ah.

Moon Lovers will be directed by It’s Okay, It’s Love’s PD Kim Kyu-tae, and is aiming to air early next year.

That's because she just gave birth to her first child earlier this year. I think she'll be busy with family matters for at least another year, so I'm not expecting to see her in another work anytime soon. Though I agree she would be a good choice for the heroine in terms of looks and acting (although if she's paired with Junki, I worry a little about Junki appearing to be younger or same age as her, when his character should be considerably older than hers).

There's like 9 prince in the original drama. Maybe Lee Jun Ki is courted for the 4th prince, while Kang Ha Neul's for the 8th/13th prince..

Can they cast Park Bo Young instead? I wanna see her in a Sageuk drama and she can pull off the original's female lead personality. I'd love to see Kim Ji Won too with Lee Jun Ki and Kang Ha Neul. Park Shin Hye is a good choice but her personality will be so different from the chinese version. I like Ha Ji Won in Sageuk and I wanna see her paired up with Lee Jun Ki.

Lmao.. I'll stop from here! I'll just wait for the news to avoid further disappointments.

If LJK is 4th, there's a good chance KHN is 8th. Put him next to LJK and somehow he's no longer too young for the role. I think PBY and HJW are both too old for the role though. I think by the looks of how things are going they'll go young for most of the roles.

Park Bo Young's age is perfect for the role though. Zhang Xiao is between 25-30 years old and Ruoxi is suppose to be a teenager in the beginning. The whole drama takes place in 20 years, so as the story goes on, Ruoxi becomes older. She dies at the age of 34-35 years old.

Liu Shishi was 23-24 years old at the time when she filmed Bu Bu Jing Xin, which was perfect in combination with Kevin Cheng and Nicky Wu (8th and 4th Prince) who were both turning in their 40s when they filmed this, which is close to the real ages of the princes. Park Bo Young turns 25 this year, so age wise, she makes a better candidate than Ha Ji Won or Lee Bo Young.

There may not be 8th or 13th or 14th prince in this remake. We need to consider who were Wang So's brothers at that era which he was not yet the king, and how old they were relative to him.

I like the idea of Park Bo Young!

My first thought was how I've wanted to see LJK perform with Jang Na Ra. Mostly because I want to see him play opposite an actress that can believably swing between strength (having both grit and gravitas), and vulnerability (ultra petite, soft and feminine).

I like how that image would create believable stakes for a romance/conflict with an evil prince. And how it would blend with the intensity LJK can deliver.

So either PBY or JNR fit the bill for what I'd like to see.

About their age. This is a fusion. And Korean. So why not throw in a noona romance angle? :-)

I like JNR but

Firstly, I don't really see RX in her. And I think her voice may sound out of place in a sageuk. Truth be told she was quite average in her dramas following FTLY so perhaps she needs some time off.

Secondly, I think she probably needs to stay away from remakes of overwhelmingly popular Cdramas because her scandal hasn't blown over yet (yes, even after like 5/6 years). She'll probably get tons of backlash if she's cast which won't do good to the production and her career.

Turning this into a Noona-Dongsaeng romance is like taking away the essence of Bu Bu Jing Xin, especially if we are talking about 4th Prince. Just wrong.

It is like adapting In Time With You, a story about two same-aged friends that follows them from their high school years to their thirties into The Time We Are Not In Love, a story about a noona who is ten years older than her boyfriend dongsaeng. You see, it will mess up the whole plot structure and character map and there would be no meaning behind a remake.

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

Oh no! That's taking it more literally than I meant. :-)

There are two love interests, one older and the other younger. These actresses would be the right age for the older man, but a noona to the younger man. Hence the 'noona romance' angle. I didn't mean the typical rom-com noona romance; but simply a younger man being in a relationship with a slightly older woman.

That said, the strength of the reactions to this has me a little worried. I think a lot of people will be disappointed if they equate a 'remake' with a 'replica' of the original drama. :-( We have to expect there'll be differences. Whether or not the changes mesh well within the basic story framework is what'll matter in the end.

* I did take a look at the first couple of episodes of the original, and agree that casting PBY would be more in keeping with the original character.

Bu Bu Jing Xin/Scarlet Heart is one of my favourite drama of all time. It is one of the most beautifully written and directed Chinese drama.

And I am a fan of Lee Jun Ki, loved him in Time Between Dog and Wolf, Iljimae and Two Weeks.

However, I am a little doubtful that a Korean remake of it could be remotely as good as the original.

But I am still hopeful that PD Kim Kyu Tae can do some magic.

Ya.... i doubt it now. Not against LJK, he's good actor, but he's miscast for the 4th prince role, LJK don't have the "aura" for masculine princes, LJK so flower boy. LJK i think can't cast as 14th prince too,since 14th prince was a General at war.

Goryeo costumes are quite different from Joseon, so should not be any problem differentiating this role. I'm happy that there won't be any gats.

Wow, even though I know LJK does a lot of sageuk, I actually wouldn't mind seeing him accepting this role. The character of the fourth king sounds quite similar to the original story's fourth prince in terms of personality and ruling style.

But the writer is more important..... no one wants Lee Jun Ki stuck with a stupid script like in Scholar Who Walks the Night. And cast a good heroine please, none of these no-talent acting-dols or useless Go Sung Hees etc types. Lee Yu Bi at least tried in Scholar Who Walks the Night but she can't defeat a stupidly written character. If you pick a young heroine then at least don't handicap the actress by making her look stupid all the time and giving her nothing to do.

I'm just worried that this sounds like a trainwreck in the making, I mean The Time We Were Obliged To Do PPL also had a PD who'd directed three dramas that were much, much better than the latest one turned out to be - and it was also an adaptation of a beloved cdrama.

Now this one has Kim Kyu-tae and I have no clue about the writer.....and considering that, I'd say oppa RUN, don't walk!

They also need to cast right for the female lead on this one, from what I know she's far too central to the drama to be played by any old idol-actress or non-idol actress of questionable talents. Lee Yubi doesn't really deserve the raw deal she got character-wise in Scholar, and I hope whoever's cast here, if they're good, isn't totally sidelined into playing dumb aegyo girl.

I don't think Lee Yubi was miscast, so much as that her character was very badly written to the point that she could do very little with it.

A lesser actress would have given up five minutes in, but she tried, and tried HARD to find any point of likeability/believability for Yang-sun, and for that she has to be given credit.

This production seems to be very well on track to becoming a hot mess. I don't feel as strongly about this one as I did In Time With You, as Nirvana In Fire has outstripped every drama in existence that BBJX now feels like a fairly average Cdrama. I hope LJK doesn't pick this one though, as no matter how much I love his acting, I haven't been able to finish any of his dramas since Two Weeks. I hope he can find something more original and as enchanting as Aarang was.

Never watch nor know anything about the original Cdrama BBJX but I'll take LJK in hanbok anytime. Because he's sooo prettyyyyy in hanbok.

I'm seeing a lot of comments didn't want him (saying he's not really that 4th prince type) in the drama,and from KHN post also many say that the 4th prince is somewhat cold hearted/angsty? type and LJK pretty face might not suit the role.

my personal opinion also didn't want him to take this project. He need to steer away from sageuk for time being, do some light romcom maybe, some silly cute romcom, or some action filled film (I think this hot in korean film right now).

But if he do take this drama and KHN also joins in, what a pretty picture they made. And add MCW and that cinematography directors/editor + costume coordinator from The Princess Man and we can at least get pretty sageuk ecen if the plot is meh.

Like Jang Hyuk, Lee Joon Gi simply has a flair for Sageuk. So if he gets historical drama offers he should take it!! Because of course.

So I don't get it about 'comfort zone' and doing the same thing over and over. We have tonnes of romcom contemporary dramas and such. More actors should do more sageuks, even if exclusively. Ten years from now you'll know why.

No he hasn't....he's been an aristocrat, Scholar, Magistrate but never royalty. He should rock the palace jewels and robes quote well.

If your idea of flop is purely based on ratings of less than 10%, then 4 out of 6 dramas flop every week. And Scholar was not successful because of the poor writing, not the acting.

There were no rumours or news about other actors passing on this role. It makes sense for the production team to have him as their first choice because he can act well especially in sageuks, he's popular in China and Korea, his dramas sell well overseas. Scholar already sold to Japan before it aired in Korea, so ultimately it's all commercial sense.

My first image of Lee Joon Gi was playing the aloof and cold young aristocrat in Arang and the Magistrate. He has the looks and persona, don't be fooled.

Apparently, so reports claim that he is already confirmed for the role of the fourth prince??
My ideal fourth prince for this remake would probably go to Joo Jin Mo-- he has that really heavy gravitas and camera presence that is required for the character of the fourth prince, I think

I'd like to see Park Shin Hye starr along side Lee Jung Ki. It'll be a great pair! They are both great actors and both have easy going personality. It'll be awesome to see them work together. I'm excited! ?

I have a gut feeling Park Shin Hye will be considered. My first choice has always been Park Min Young, but Park Shin Hye is a good choice too.

Both LJG and KHN confirmed. I hope they choose a fantastic screenwriter, and a fabulous heroine. PLEASE - No NSM!

thank you for the news, I'm so excited to read that Lee Jun Ki ssi is in a talk for a new drama!!! :D Lee Jun Ki ssi in a new drama (sageuk or modern drama) = I'm in :D

I believe that he's a great actor who keeps getting better with every role he takes and like javabeans said "even when the dramas themselves aren’t great, he’s always reliably solid in them" witch makes me admire him even more for giving his best in every drama all the same and that's why I'll keep cheering for him in every project he takes and I believe that he can pull off this role if he signs up, anyhow I wish him all the best!!! :)

Another Saguek for LJK? Ehmm....Typecast (cough) typecast.

Please say no and star in a modern day drama. It's been a while since Two weeks. Or better yet, a romcom? Mix it up a little. The last three back to back sagueks LJK starred in are becoming indistinguishable in my head.

Last 2 back to back, and with this one, it will be 3. But since this one is Goryeo and not Joseon, maybe it will be different. I prefer the Goryeo costumes and hairstyles to Joseon's.

Not really typecast, because different characters like ghost seeing magistrate, gunman disguised as Japanese businessman and vampire. And now a powerful prince/king character. Typecast applies more to the perpetual chaebols.
